About This Activity

Come join us for the 6th Annual Ninos de Mexico 5k Run/1 Mile Run/Walk. We are adding a kids 1 mile timed run this year. Come out and support the Ninos de Mexico Children! Their mission is To be a Christian mission focused on caring for orphans (James 1:27) and encouraging growth in the local church (Acts 2:47).

Since 1967, Niños de México has been giving LIFE to these children one child at time. Many of these children have grown up to become doctors, ministers, teachers, and more, helping to spread the good news of Jesus Christ in Mexico. Today, we are actively involved in sharing Jesus with the children and people of Mexico through our seven children’s homes, Christian school, medical outreach, and church plants.
